After spending three days in Lamadai and Bunda, the area where the Serengeti Marathon takes place, we felt that it was really time again for a short cycling adventure. Franklin is a big fan of NomadMania and through this website he found out that the nearby island “Ukerewe” must be a hidden gem. Only 90km cycling! We were not sure if it would be gravel, mud, sand or tarmac, but it sounded like a fun ride!

We did it! Finished another marathon. And a very special one. But how… and with what kind of preparation, that is another topic. Some quotes from during and right after the race that describe the situation best:
“I said I was not going to walk this time… but now look at me!” - Josien
“Here babe, take a piece of banana but just keep running! Am proud of you!” – Franklin
We did not book the Kilimanjaro trekking before we arrived in Tanzania. We wanted to see what the weather would be like and of course get the best possible offer. Then actually the hotel connected us with Joseph, who gave us a great explanation about the different routes and possibilities. We had a good feeling and decided to go ahead with Joseph and the team.
